Welcome Challenges

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

"Jesus Calling" was written by Sarah Young, and the daily devotionals are written as if Jesus is speaking directly to us.

June 4th

"Welcome challenging times as opportunities to trust Me. You have Me beside you and My Spirit within you, so no set of circumstances is too much for you to handle. When the path before you is dotted with difficulties, beware of measuring your strength against those challenges. That calculation is certain to riddle you with anxiety. Without Me, you wouldn't make it past the first hurdle!

The way to walk through demanding days is to grip My hand tightly and stay in close communication with Me. Let your thoughts and spoken words be richly flavored with trust and thankfulness. Regardless of the day's problems, I can keep you in perfect Peace as you stay close to me."

James 1:2-4 "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through him who gives me strength."

Isaiah 26:3 "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you."

Nancy here: God doesn't expect us to handle things alone; He wants us to lean on Him.

    Nancy thank you so much for sharing this. It is so true but often we forget and want to manage everything on our own. It Is good to be reminded He wants to help us thru tough times.
